Your link back to the exchange from the cabinet has probably always been fibre but you were on connected to an ADSL DSLAM next to the existing cabinet.
It's all irrelevant anyway as when VDSL FTTC becomes available they just route you through that. The TPON becomes irrelevant and can be left there.
I'm wondering if the engineer connected you properly at all. Was the 7Mb he was seeing actually an ADSL signal being provided by the ADSL street cabinet rather than the new VDSL cabinet?
